Viva Las $$Vegas$$

Hey everyone! I hope the new year is going great for all of you, and I hope you had a Bashing Superbowl weekend!! I joined Sammy for a gig at the Palms resort in Las Vegas on Sat. and it was totally crazy!! For those of you who were there, I hope you've recovered by now!! We had a special treat for everyone at the end of the show, good friends Chad Smith and Joe Satriani joined Sammy and myself for a little jammin', and it was out of control!! I'll be posting some pics on my website soon for you to check out.....Be talking to all of you soon, Michael

Hey Mike

Wow, just discovered this blog, way cool. Saw you way back in '88 or '89 at the Monsters of Rock at the Cotton Bowl, Dallas. Sammy was climbing way up the side scaffolding which scared the &$^# out of me.

Glad to hear about the show in Las Vegas. But the rest of '08 seems a bit lacking. Aside from the shows in Tahoe, not much of a tour coming up. Does Sammy have something cooking beyond the appearances with Kenny Chesney? I sure hope so.

The Vegas show was AWESOME, Mikey!
What a surprise to see Satriani come out and jam. You guys were just having too much fun up there! Thanks for the great show and hope to see you in Tahoe!

Hey Michael,
This is Brian Adkins in Rome Georgia just about an hour N.W of Atlanta. I was wondering if you plan on being in my neck of the woods on your tour. I saw Van Halen in Atlanta on Sunday Feb. 9th and though it was great it wasn't the same without you. I was suprised to get there and find out you were not performing. I hope you get this and if you could possibly e-mail me when or if you are going to be close by here. I have also included my cell phone # . It's always on LOL

Keep The Faith My Friend

A Loyal Fan,

Brian Adkins

dude, im pissed i missed you guys here in sin city. i heard nothing about this show on the radio, that sucks. i have seen halen 2 times on their tour and was hoping to see you and sammy together at some point. i never saw halen with sammy, because i thought, and still think, van halen without diamond dave isnt van halen. that being said i think you are one the best bass players ever. i also love sammy. his solo career, and yes his van halen songs are great. i hope you guys come back here someday and i can party to you two rocking out!

I hope you guys make it out here soon.....thanks for rocking.

As one bass player to another, thanks so much for everything you have done through the years! You have been the one and only influence on my playing! I just was hired by a band that compared my style of playing to yours, and that is the best compliment I've ever received! Check out my website, and you'll see I write about how you have been such a great influence to me through the years! Keep up the work, and I'll see you on the Road and '08! ( Caught the show in Sioux City, Iowa last November- AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Mike- Just wanted to say thanks for all you have done for the fans through the years, especially in light of the whole VH fiasco. Thanks for being so classy about it. Without you, there is no Van Halen. Period!

Caught the Sioux City show- it was awesome! Hear about it Later was my favorite! HA! After the show, my wife finally understood me. She told me that all the stuff I do on stage I copied from you. DUH!

I started playing bass because I dig your style of playing. There's a lot about you on my website, . You have been a huge influence on me through the years. Thank you so much. Please, START up the Michael Anthony band (or the Express- whatever you want to call it!) and get in the studio so we can hear some new stuff! You might be suprised how many people would line up to buy it.

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Internet reports are out there that the rest of the VH tour is off. Here's to hoping that Mike & Sam have a successful remainder of 2008 and that some day EVH does rehab correctly (not just a 30 day condensed version)and you guys can tour again, with nothing piped in and with Sam on vocals (and even Dave too if everybody "grows up"). It would take a sober Ed, "no mas" tequila or Cabo Wabo party on stage and a DLR willing to share the stage with Sam. If Dave's not willing, he could stay home. Good chance it'll never happen, but I'd like to see it. Bob, Vancouver WA

Hey Mike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What's up brother! Just wanted to let you know that I saw your old band a couple of months ago and I have to say it was the first time I ever yawned at a concert and looked at my watch. You are so missed my man! Anyway, there seems to be a rumour going around at the college campus where I attend school that you, Joe Satriani and Sammy are working on a new band / project. Can you shed some light or confirm if there is any thruth to that?

Hey Mike_ I came to your house a few years ago with Larry Hills having something to do with a car. It sounds like you are a classy guy and I saw you on the induction. We didn't know each other real well at AHS but we are all proud of your accomplishments and even more the way you handle yourself today. Dennis Bryant
